Reading Wrap-up – March 2018

March has come and gone! I can't believe tomorrow is already April. I haven't read that much this month. My Goodreads reading challenge is telling me I'm two books behind schedule... Apparently, I've only read two books in March and to be fair... I'm quite disappointed with myself. Conversations With Friends: A Novel by Sally [...]

“We’re Gonna Rise up” – Rise – First Impression Review (Pilot)

“Rise” aired right after a quite cheesy and easily predictable finale of “This is us”. I won't go into it. I still haven't processed it and it's been more than a week since then. The first impression I got from "Rise" was of a scrappy, not at all polished cinematography. Which is exactly what I [...]

“American Crime Story: The Assassination Of Gianni Versace” – First Impression Review

Although “American crime story: the assassination of John Versace“ aired on FX in mid January, I have only just recently decided to give it a go. Last year, I watched season one of Brian Murphy is “The People v. O.J. Simpson“ and I found that extremely fascinating and interesting. I had quite high hopes this [...]

“Find Me Some Killgrave! NOW!” – Jessica Jones Season 2 First Impression

Ok, I knew it. Killgrave wasn't going to be in the season because Jessica killed him. I am not delusional. I was expecting more flashbacks or other cinematic tricks to have more David Tennant on my screen. He is my favourite person in the entire world. I would marry him in a heart beat (if [...]

Brooklyn Nine Nine – s05 ep 12 – “Safe House” – Review

ATTENTION! This post contains spoilers for the entire 5 seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine including the latest aired episode! In case you missed it, for the past week I've been posting every day about my love for the show. I urge you to watch it and, if you like, you can read my take on it [...]

Brooklyn 99 Week – Day 7: 15 Reasons Why You Should Watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The second part of season 5 of Brooklyn Nine Nine comes back today and I'm so excited. I've mentioned this show extensively in here and why not talk about it even more? Here is my list of why every single person in the world should watch this wonderful masterpiece. The Cast From the stoic Andre [...]

“Pimento is here!” – Brooklyn99 Week – Day 6: Recurring Characters & Guest Stars

Brooklyn Nine Nine has so many hilarious guest stars and recurring character! They improve an already perfect show, they disrupt the narrative and create more opportunities for the cast to show different traits and grow. Given Andy Samberg's background on SNL, a lot of them are from the show. But we can't forget Micheal Schur's [...]

AAGLNYCPA – Brooklyn99 Week – Day 5: LGBTQ+

Yesterday I talked about social issues in general but today I want to focus my attention of how the LGBTQ+ community is represented on Brooklny Nine Nine. There is so much diversity and topics like sexuality and, because people are stupid, homophobia. Captain Holt is an openly gay black high ranking officer in the NYPD. [...]

“Man up? Sexist!” – Brooklyn99 Week – Day 4: Social Issues

Brooklyn Nine Nine has never shied away from discussing important social topics. The show dives deep into problems in society in America and in the world. It does so in funny and ridiculous ways. But if you look behind the stupid joke and hilarious delivery, it's so important. Without further ado, here are some of [...]

“It’s Heist Time!” Brooklyn99 Week – Day 3: Halloween

If you're familiar with Brooklyn99, you know that Halloween is a big deal. Every year, the precinct gets wrapped up in stealing something and the winner will be crowned "King of the 99" and an "amazing detective / genius". These episodes are so funny, intelligent and clever. On top of that, they are just silly. [...]

“Bingpot!” Brooklyn99 Week!! Day 2: Captain Raymond Holt

After yesterday's post entirely dedicated to the amazing Gina Linetti, I felt like talking about someone completely different: Captain Raymond Holt. Played by the wonderful Andre Braugher, Captain Holt is the most stoic, uptight, strict, adorable, strong, and unintentionally funny character on Brooklyn Nine Nine. What makes the show special is its diversity and Holt [...]

“If I die, turn my tweets into a book!!” Brooklyn99 Week! Day 1: 💯

💯 Who else would I be talking about other than the marvelous and amazing Gina Linetti? Brooklyn99 comes back in a week and I decided to write a post for every single day until March 18th, the day that Brooklyn99 comes back on TV!!! I am so excited! I've been connecting with some people on [...]

Hollywood Phonies’ Awards And Racist Homophobes in Chief

4:56 PM I'm joking, of course. I've been obsessed with The Lonely Island in these past couple of days and "Threw It On the Ground" is hilarious. So that's where "Hollywood Phonies" comes from. The other part of the title refers to the fucking morons we might elect tonight. I'm writing this part at 5PM [...]

January / February Reading Wrap-up 2018

So far in these first two months of the year I've read 10 books. Some of them were university related, one was really bad, three where about feminism, one about politics,  one contemporary literature and a re-read!!!! The first book of the year was hell. I believe there is a circle of Dante Inferno where [...]

Winter Beauty Haul 2017/2018

I haven't talked about beauty for a long time but I've had some time to spare and I wanted to share the products I have recently (and not so recently) bought. Yes, I am months behind. I know. Who cares. SEPHORA Lips Cream Stain in 17 I decided to treat myself with a Sephora lipsticks. [...]
